WORKSHOP TITLE:  Ecology of Consciousness: making climates – inner and outer relationships of resonance

Workshop Description:

In our workshop „Ecology of Consciousness” we will explore the higher potentials of the eco-climate crisis. How can we collectively find ways to use the crisis for our human development? How can we, as beings of the anthropocene, create dynamic “human-earth-climates” in a positive way instead of only trying to solve problems? In this workshop we will listen to the surrounding nature, let the atmospheres of Ytterjärna speak to us and creatively formulate new climate narratives that go beyond problem-solving towards some exciting regenerative climate visions. Philip will also introduce us to the framework of the Inner Development Goals (IDG’s) as a tool for inner and outer transformation. “…Let’s create the climates we long for!”

About Philip:

Philip Stoll is a visual artist working with the themes of attention and witnessing. Over the last 15 years he has been working with his meditative walking practice as a way of investigating the invisible qualities of places in Europe, Russia, North America and East Africa. His work abstracts visual reality, making the visible invisible in order to make the invisible visible. With long photographic exposures he lets site-specific light express itself on film as a way of witnessing the qualities of places. His photographic paintings have been exhibited internationally in galleries and collections such as Kulturhuset Järna, Kunststation St. Peter, Gallery ArtLantis, Froehlich Collection etc. Most recently, he has worked as a process-facilitator for the city of Bad Sobernheim in southern Germany where he guides city leaders, doctors, therapists and forest-workers in a process of sensing the potentials of their regional forest in order to transform it into a pubic “healing forest”. His flute is always with him, because creativity needs music. Other projects of his include collaborations with the city of Mannheim to heal the public park’s biodiversity with artistic and inclusive social methods.
